's considering enacting a 50% tax on ammunition, expanding a state ban on assault weapons, and bans large capacity magazines like the one used by adam lanza in the newtown shooting. this single mother from waterbury believes those changes would be going too far. >> you will take away my legal ability to protect myself and my children at a reasonable price. protecting myself and my children means i should continue to be able to select the firearm and magazine size that i believe will keep us safe. don't my children and i deserve your support, your consideration to be safe? >> not one of these gun proposals would have impacted this heinous act, nor will it affect future perpetrator. these current quick-fix, do-something bills do not address the root cause and actions of the newtown criminal. please remember gun owners tore good guys. >> reporter: the rabbi counseled many of the newtown families. >> this is serious. i do not want to come here or at any other city to describe what it's like to console parents who have had their childrens' brains shot out. >> reporter: mark mattioli whose son

immigrants would have to register with the federal government and pay bonds and back taxes, undergo background checks but not before increased border security can be proven. illegal immigrants would receive green cards only after every lawful applicant has gone lou the process we shouldn't be rewarding those who violate the law. >> reporter: the president's re-election with 70% of the latino vote has resulted in a shift towards compromise. but some who watch the speech feel the president did not have enough specifics. >> he didn't specify how long he would take. what we want is we want a clear, human path towards legalization that's less than five years, five years at most. >> reporter: many americans remain deeply divided on the plan while some republicans on capitol hill warn about a partisan approach. >> if this endeavor becomes a bidding war to see who can come up with the easiest, quickest and cheapest pathway to green card possible, this thing is not going to go well, folks. >> reporter: back in nevada another step in the road to reform laws most agree are broken. passage of l

, and this is net, after tax revenue is realized, $2.6 trillion. and that's in costs in medicare, social security, unemployment compensation, food stamps and other welfare programs. that's a foundation study. so the bottom line is, we're trying to balance the budget in washington that we'll balance in ten years but not taking into account the 2.6 trillion that it will cost by creating a pathway to citizenship and that number may increase, wolf, if we don't have our borders secured. >> one final question, because a lot of republicans are looking at the fastest growing vote, the hispanic vote across the country and republicans, at least in the last presidential election, the one before 2008, didn't do very well. they are obviously anxious to reach out to latino voters. are you saying you want to just forget about that vote? >> no. what i'm saying, wolf, is that anyone that believes that immigration or illegal immigration is the most important issue to the latino population in america is grossly mistaken. it is an issue but it's not the most important issue to latinos. listen, the people that are hu

undergoing background checks, paying taxes in a penalty and learning english and certainly anything republicans would sign on to, coral, th carol, they'd have a tougher pathway. >> senators have a plan, the president has a plan and the house members say they have a plan. whenever the house gets involved usually there's trouble so what do you think? >> reporter: certainly they will be farther to the right, that would be the expectation, so trying to get all of those ideas out there, and then i think we'll have a better sense of if there may be some insurmountable differences. the difference and you're hearing this also from house republicans, we heard this over the weekend from paul ryan, that they want to do something. obviously the devil is in the details, and the truth is, carol, that time is really what will tell. we can't tell if this is going to succeed right now but when you look at the past, 2007, president bush failed in his attempt to deal with immigration reform, conservative members of his own party scuttling that effort and in 2010 you had kind of a peaiecemeal measure i

is that it is not always going to be cheap. once people start paying highway taxes like you do for gasoline, that is suddenly going to get more expensive. already you cannot recover your cost of those conversions. certainly do not need all us to pay for those conversions. the problem will be solved in the marketplace, particularly with what is available to us as a resource base today. and that is our own production. one other factor a lot of people miss, besides a wealth creation and all of those things, a big one is that the psychological benefit of us not being under the thumb of opec any longer. the american public likes to be independent. we like to be free. suddenly we can be free from what we have been under for 50 years. the psychological impact of that is huge. >> i have always thought the the impact of oil on american middle east policies was understated. there is an episode where he is looking at the equipment and the people and investment and he says, it costs a lot of money to steal oil.
